BUG #: 15592 (NT: 6.00)
When converting a DBFLT8 to a DBNUMERIC that results in a truncation, dbconvert returns -1, but there is no error message (error handler) indicating the reason for the dbconvert failure.
To work around this problem, ensure that the DBNUMERIC is initialized (precision, scale) so that no truncation will occur.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft SQL Server 6.0. This problem does not occur in SQL Server 6.5. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
